Black screen after logout of openbox!!




Hi.
Installed openbox from slackbuilds.org in Slackware 13.37. I have installed proprietary Nvidia drivers from their site and is installed succesfully.

But, when I logout from in the openbox, its all a black screen I am greeted with. And the same with the code "openbox --exit"

Any suggestions?!!

Does the problem persits when you kill X manually? Any errors in the logfiles? Off the top of my head, try adding
Code:
TerminateServer=true
to the Core section of /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc (or uncomment if the line is available).

I am using the 290.10 nVidia proprietary driver on my system, and find I have to use the Alt-F1 key combination to get back to the terminal screen after exiting from X.
